A GENERATIONAL REMINDER
Source: Psalm119 from verse 78:
Let the proud be disgraced for they have cut me down with their lies. REMIND me to concentrate my thoughts upon your laws. All others who join me, who trust and fear you, REMIND us to love your every wish so we never have to be ashamed of ourselves. Our eyes are straining to see your promises, REMIND us of your true promises that will comfort us with your help. Like a wine skin shriveled by smoke, exhausted, waiting for you to REMIND us to cling to your laws in obedience.
Be aware of such proud men who REMIND us of persecution and hate held by them, and who need punishment for being against your truths and laws. REMIND us of their lies that have bought us into deep trouble. We are REMINDED of your loving truths, within your kindness, that spares our lives to enable us to continue to obey you. Your word stands forever firm Lord, it REMINDS us that your faithfulness extends to every generation, like the earth you created and endures and by decree, REMINDING all that everything serves your plans and that we would have perished and despaired unless your laws were our deepest delight.
Your laws REMIND us of your words and make us wiser than our enemies and are our constant guide. Yes, wiser than our teachers, even wiser than the aged. Your words, Lord, REMIND of a flashlight to light the path ahead of us and to keep us from stumbling. REMIND US EACH to accept your mercy on us as is your way with those who love you, guide us with your laws so we will not be overcome by evil.
Most of all Lord, REMIND US THAT YOU LOOK DOWN IN LOVE UPON EVERY GENERATION AND TEACH US ALL YOUR LAWS TO STAY IN OUR HEARTS.
To love one another.
